. >> thank you very much. both mitt romney and barack obama have suspended their schedules just days before the voters make their choice. for more on the storm's impact on this race, i'm joined by the bbc north america editor in florida where president obama was supposed to be campaigning today and bridgette in cleveland, ohio, the state where governor romney was supposed to be stomping today. let's start with you in florida. i'm incredibly jealous. pouring with rain here in washington, d.c. it must feel a world away, both weather-wise and politically. >> yes, it does. we woke up here this morning thinking the president wag going to launch his campaign. we knew this was going to be a big moment with bill clinton rolling out the big guns, if you like, and that was all canceled rather suddenly just as we woke up. so it was really strange knowing he was flying back to cope with a crisis while the rally went on and the normal things you hear at these rallies, the political campaign was going on. and the storm was mentioned by bill clinton but really not heavily. only in passing. and i think peo
was at a red cross center today and he will assess the damage tomorrow. a rally in ohio for mitt romney turned into a storm relief drive. i am joined in astin -- austin, texas by matthew doud. i have been speaking to you from both campaigns today. no one wanted to play politics with this storm, but we are a week away from election day and they are both thinking about how this will affect them. >> the first thing it does is freeze the rates where it was before this storm happen. a slight advantage for mitt romney on the popular vote, and a slight advantage for the president to on the electoral college. you cannot really assess this until we get through this. and it will not be until this weekend where we see the impact of this. my inclination is that if the president can be president and not a candidate in the midst of this, he may see some small bump out of this. because the american public will see him acting as president, and that is always an advantage for an incumbent. >> and we have been seeing him get praise from others. governor crist kristie came out and said that the white house has d
, shrinking federal government, that's mitt romney. so for all the talk of bipartisanship we've heard in the last two weeks from both candidates, there's not a lot of bipartisanship out there. >> when you speak to republican voters, you've been out around the country a lot, there is a real sense that they are very angry with what's this president has done to the country in terms of expanding government. do democrats feel the same about what mitt romney would do if he were president? >> they do, although in a sense it's a bit below the surface, since they're not experiencing it right now. but we have a similar experience under george w. bush, who tried briefly to governor as a kind of bipartisan moderate, but then turned markedly conservative. so in those days you have the same kind of democratic rage against that republican president that you now have in reverse. it's very difficult to see where the middle ground would be for either of these candidates, and it won't be any easier if we have a narrow result, because that will mean the new president, whoever he is, doesn't have a terrif
